Nursing (BScN) > Four-Year Collaborative Program (Ryerson, Centennial, George Brown)

"I really like how the program integrates the real life experiences, so your clinical placement, with the actual theoretical piece. Here we go into our placement first year. And I really like that because it lets you solidify everything you've learned, whether it's the physical skills, or the actual techniques of speaking to your client."

Nursing student, Ryerson University
